The Tri-series between Australia, India, and England was a perfect dress rehearsal for the three teams for the ICC Women's World T20. Women's Cricket has grown leaps and bounds over the past few overs and this edition of the tournament is being followed all across the globe by almost each and every cricket fan. The tournament is set to kick off with the match between India and Australia, the match which is to be played at North Sydney Oval, Sydney, on 21st February. India and Australia produced three superbly fought matches in the recently concluded T20I tri-series and if that series is to be taken as the sign of things to come, this could be a humdinger of a game.
Just like the men's team of 2000s, Australia are the powerhouse of Women's Cricket. They are placed at the top spot in Women's T20I rankings and have a terrific record since the last World Cup. Their squad is full of players who can contribute in all departments of the game.
Although Australia have been terrific in last two years, their recent form would be a cause of concern. They were inconsistent in the recently concluded tri-series, which they won, as they lost two from five matches. That was a major change to their statistics as compared to their form since the beginning of 2018. From 2018, the Aussies have won 26 off the total of 31 matches played with five defeats included the two they were dealt with recently.
Led by Meg Lanning, the Aussies have an extremely well-balanced unit. With the likes of Beth Mooney and Elysse Perry in fine form, getting past this Australian batting unit would be a challenge not just for the Indians, but also for all the teams in the tournament. Although Alyssa Healy couldn't deliver what she is known to in the tri-series as she notched a string of five single-digit scores, the management wouldn't be too concerned. She has been their most profilic run-scorer over the last two years and was brilliant in Big Bash League as well.
Australia are coming into the tournament on the back of a superb history. They have four titles to their name and while the pressure of getting the fifth one will be there, they are in no way short of experience and maturity, as far as team personnel is concerned.
Alyssa Healy, Beth Mooney, Ashleigh Gardner, Meg Lanning, Ellyse Perry, Rachael Haynes, Annabel Sutherland, Jess Jonassen, Delissa Kimmince, Molly Strano, Megan Schutt.
The closest India have come to winning the World Cup was in the last edition of the tournament, in which they finished runners-up. Compared to the team India had in 2018, this team is a lot better-balanced and it would be surprising if they do not make the semifinals of the tournament.
While India have shown glimpses of brilliance over the last year and a half, they have lacked in consistency. Since the beginning of 2019, India have won ten matches and lost the same number of matches despite playing most of their matches against the lower seeded sides.
Comprising of Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodriques, and Shafali Verma, India have a terrific top-order. However, it is their middle order where they have struggled. More often than not, Harmanpreet Kaur was left in a position to carry the team all by herself, with the team in a spot of bother.
Other than the players mentioned above, India do not have much to speak about, as far as their batting is concerned. Having said that, their spinners are likely to enjoy bowling on bigger Australian grounds and can turn the game in India's favour. Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Deepti Sharma have been in fine form for the Indians and are more than capable to take India home with the ball.
All in all, India are a pretty good, but unpredictable unit. On their day, they are capable of toppling any side in the tournament, but can also succumb to pressure when it's not their day. If they can play a bit more responsibly and their top-order fires, stopping India could be difficult even for the Australians.
Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur, Deepti Sharma, Veda Krishnamurthy, Shikha Pandey, Taniya Bhatia, Arundhati Reddy, Poonam Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad.

While this match is the recap of the tri-series final between Australia and India, the importance of this match is a lot more than that one. Considering that this is one of the tournament's toughest groups that the two teams are part of, each win is of significant importance. India and Australia are both coming off similar results with the hosts having a slight advantage there. Additionaly, Australia are a better-balanced side, at least on paper, and have the home advantage. Even though India are more than capable to defeat India and they did that, Australia are an overall better unit and betting on their win would be the way to go here.
